Famous quotes containing the word wearing:

    To be faced with what so-and-so’s mother lets him do, or what the teacher said in class today or what all the kids are wearing is to be required to reexamine some part of our belief structure. Each time we rethink our values we reaffirm them or begin to change them. Seen in this way, parenthood affords us an exceptional opportunity for growth.
    Ruth Davidson Bell (20th century)

    It is not linen you’re wearing out
    But human creatures’ lives!
    Stitch—stitch—stitch,
    In poverty, hunger, and dirt,
    Sewing at once, with a double thread,
    A Shroud as well as a Shirt.
    Thomas Hood (1799–1845)

    Being constantly with children was like wearing a pair of shoes that were expensive and too small. She couldn’t bear to throw them out, but they gave her blisters.
    Beryl Bainbridge (20th century)
